CRANKY YANKEE Violent lyrics increase aggression claim (25) RE: Violent lyrics increase aggression claim 08 May 03


Horse shit. And, I have more than a little experetise in the area of intraspecific agression. I have the rank of GODAN in Traditional Shotokan Karate,and, am being inducted into the Martial Arts Hall of Fame in the category of Instrucxtor of the year.
This honor is due to my initiating a program in the Providenc RI Public Schools that has proven to change teen agers destructive and violent tendencies into constructive, non-violent character and personality traits. We are effecting an actual CURE for anti social personalities, something that no Psychologist , Psychiatrist or counciller has ever done. Furthermore we change violent to non violent behavior in eight weeks. Heres what we did:
The Principal of the Nathan Bishop Middle School in Providence, RI chose 20 of his worst offenders, kids with failing report cards,who mouth off to their teachers and are forever getting into fights and other ikinds of trouble. He made it MANDATORY that these kids attend two classes of traditional Shotokan Karate per week after school or have 5 oeriods of detention evcery week.
In EIGHT WEEKS WE GOT THE RESULTS THAT,WE HAVE LEARNED TO EXPECT WHEN WE TEACH VIOLENT MEN TRADITIONAL KARATE.   Without exception, and I stress without exception they lose their violent tendencies and become the kind of person who avoids violence and becomes a more pacifistic person.

Our "little thugs" stopped picking fights, stopped mouthing off to their teachers, formed friendships between Black and Hispoanic kids that, hitherto, would have been impossible, They actually started to do their school work, and attend classes. All 20 got improved report cards. They are now all in high school, not one drop out in the bunch.

We knew this would happen, but we never expected these results in such a short time. The Principal and all lthe teachers are delighted.

Now here is where we contradict any studies that declare violent lthoughts breed violent personalities. our students eat, breath,and think violence. They are constantly learning techniques that are vastly superior to the instinctive way that young males exercise their intra - specific agressive instincts.

There are two kinds of Martial Arts schools. One that teaches the traditional styles, and the other that I call "Chop- Socki" schools which teach a bag of self defence tricks that depend on their attacker doing exactly what is expected of them. This secoond kind of so called Karate training, which is not at all real karate, is the kind that trhe 9-11 hijackers learned and has no effect, plus or minus, on th4e students character and perswonallity.

Go to WWW.rishotokan.com. It will give you a lot of information about our school. Click on "instructors" and you'll find me. The reason for the silly expression on my face in some of the photographs is because I was forceably exhaling.
Look, if you want more information, and a description of what activity acrually effects this remarkable change, send me an E-mail, To Crankyyankee3@WMconnect.com. I'll be abl;e to take my time writing it and won't have to worry about getting bumped off as sometimes happens here.
